Beer

 

Bancroft Beer   |  2.5 / 4 / 6

Our daily drinker, named after the street our humble brewery rests on. Brewed with Pilsner and Maris Otter malt. Singularly hopped with Mosaic. Punchy notes of Satsuma orange rind, lychee flesh, and fresh blueberry muffin with a clean and crisp finish. 4.2% abv


Festbier *LIMITED*   |  3 / 4.5 / 7

To celebrate the season of harvest and welcome in those cool Fall breezes, we brewed up a batch of what is locally known as Festbier in Munich, typically served at their world renowned annual celebration. Bright golden hued in color, Festbier is like the lighter, more sessionable cousin to what we know as Oktoberfest here in the states (Marzen). German Pilsner and Vienna malts come together to form a sturdy, yet drinkable malt base. The German Magnum and Tettnanger hop additions are light, but there to keep those dextrins in check. Fermented low and slow with our favorite lager yeast strain. Bold notes of freshly baked bread, pie crust, and herbed honey. Dry with a pleasant minerality to cut the malt and deliver a quick finish. 5.5% abv.


Wee Buddy  |  2.5 / 4 / 6

An American twist on an English Summer Ale, whipped up with 2-row and oats. Hopped with Amarillo and Wakatu in the kettle and then gently dry hopped with a blend of Amarillo, Wakatu, and East Kent Goldings. A clean and crackery malt profile is balanced with notes of Tetley’s Iced Tea, wisps of orange zest, and rolling rural countrysides. 3.6% abv

 

Cave aged Three   |  6

Originally blended for our 3rd Anniversary in early 2020 before you know what. Comprised of 2 y/o barrel aged rye saison, 1.5 y/o barrel aged sour ale, and then cut with “jonge” [young] stainless aged mixed fermentation ale brewed with lemon peel and juniper. The cave does wonders on these beers as the stronger flavors are tempered over time at subterranean temps. Bright lemon zest jumps off the palate followed by light sandal wood, funky muscadet, and meandering trips through Flemish countrysides that may involve psychedelics. This one’s real fun. 6% abv

 

Zestimated Antler  |  3 / 4.5 / 7

Another day, another heat advisory. Here to help you through it is Zestimated Antler, a cheeky riff on our Estimated Antler Nelson Pale Ale. We took the same base recipe but added a bunch of fresh house processed lime juice and zest. It’s like a Nelson Pale Ale and a Margarita made a lil’ love and had a beer baby. Loads of citrusy coconut and chamomile with a pithy bite. 5% abv

 

Bancroft Beer Citra 16oz can |  6

Traditionally, every year for our anniversary we like to have a little fun and brew a special one off batch of our beloved South Philly banger with the Mosaic traded out for some of our favorite hop varieties. So as part of our ongoing 2021 “non-anniversary” celebration, we’ve brought back one of the versions we enjoyed most! Classic Bancroft crushability paired with notes of freshly chopped weed plants, rising dough, and midsummer hikes through grassy fields. All wrapped up for you in a crispy tight package. 4.20% abv

 

Chifforobe  |  4 / 6 

English Style Olde Ale brewed with copious amounts of malty malts and aged for 6 cool months. Deep, dark, and lush with notes of toffee, dried foraged herbs, and faint wisps of the unknown. 9.2% abv


Estimated Antler 16oz can  |  7

Pale ale chock full of Nelson Sauvin. We reworked the recipe and process for this one slightly, with different additions and a cooler fermentation temp. The result is pure Nelson delight with focused flavors of freshly harvested German chamomile, bread crust, and a crispy clean bitterness.   5% abv


Boho 4ever |  3 / 4.5 / 7

A rustic unfiltered Bohemian pilsner featuring all Czech pilsner malt and abundantly hopped with Czech Saaz. Fermented low and slow with our house lager yeast. A lovely biscuity base gives way to a cornucopia of flavors including earthy earl gray tea, cracked white pepper, and bails of freshly cut hay. 4.6% abv


Pinap Attack |  3 / 4.5 / 7

BB IPA brewed for ultimate quaffability with 2-row barley, German Pilsner, and German wheat malts. Hopped with generous amounts of Citra and Galaxy in the kettle and post fermentation. Conditioned on globs and globs of juicy Pineapple puree. Extra crushable with notes of beachside breezes, Dole daydreams, and citrus sunrises. 4.1% abv


Big Hill Standard Cider |  5 / 7

Beautiful, straightforward cider from our friends in Central PA
